The NRC’s Campus Council creates stronger linkages between higher education and the sustainable materials management industry. The Council was created in 2013; managed by Jack DeBell who recently retired from the University of Colorado. Ongoing projects include scholarships, awards, training, and outreach.
Goals and objectives for 2021 – Priorities include improving scholarships and awards, updating SMM White Paper, participating in five year strategic plan with budget and administrative assistance. The NRC’s improved fiduciary and staffing abilities now present opportunities for the Council to seek private and public sector funding, possibly with pass-through management, in order to minimize staff involvement.
